I am currently trialing ESA and all in all I am fairly happy with the product.
I am having two main errors appearing in the logs that I am not too thrilled about though.
Firstly, on a fairly regular basis I get an error in the ESA event log that says "Cannot retrieve the version of Exchange Server on '<exchangeserver>'."
Second, every now and then during an archiving run I get the following error:
Cannot save changes to attachment: Exception saving attachment to Exchange: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800CCE05): Error in IMAPIProp::SaveChanges: 0x800CCE05
My setup is as follows;
* Exchange 2003 on SBS 2003
* ESA on a Windows XP machine (all three services)
* Disk space on a NAS which I have had to set to public mode (not happy about that but working on it - my problem, I think it has something to do with authentication)
Windows XP machine is SP3, domain bound.
It has Office 2003 SP3 including Outlook for MAPI, .NET 1.1, .NET 2 SP2, .NET 3 SP2 and .NET 3.5 SP1 installed on it (basically an SOE machine because I was in a hurry to get the store size down before exchange crashed).
Mapi32.dll version 1.0.2536.0
Emsmdb32.dll version 11.0.8200.0
The archiving PC also has a bunch of other software including antivirus but I have disabled most apps from running on boot.
I am a little concerned that the antivirus is scanning everything during an archiving run and maybe it found something causing the second error but Trend Micro reports 0 infected files. It could be causing a race condition I guess.
Any ideas? Need more info?
Thanks in advance,
